Alfreton Town 0-2 Sheffield United
Tuesday, 16 July 2007
Sheffield United fielded trialists Jean-Joel Perrier Doumbe (Defender) and Jan-Michael Williams (Keeper) and looked impressive as they flew through the entire 90 minutes. New signing Gary Naysmith also competed the full game.
It was the home side that started the game off the brighter had had chances to score but both Cameroon and Jamaican internationals Dumbe and Luton Shelton both came close.
Rickard produced the home teams best effort, firing over the bar. Shelton's electronic pace allowed United to take the lead. Ross beating the keeper from 25 yards.
Stephen Quinn picked up an injury and was forced to be substituted by Jordan Robertson who netted the Blades second.
Trinidad international keeper Williams kept the dream alive by keeping out a Town insurgency whilst at the other end Shelton came close to adding to the score.
Blades: Williams, Doumbe, Bromby, Kilgallon, Naysmith, Ross (Kerry 62), Tonge (Naughton 80), S. Quinn (Robertson 45), Leigertwood, Horsfield, Shelton.
Unused: Annerson, Donnelly, Horwood.
